[SampleFDO] New hierarchical discriminator for Flow Sensitive SampleFDO

This patch implements first part of Flow Sensitive SampleFDO (FSAFDO).
It has the following changes:
(1) disable current discriminator encoding scheme,
(2) new hierarchical discriminator for FSAFDO.

For this patch, option "-enable-fs-discriminator=true" turns on the new
functionality. Option "-enable-fs-discriminator=false" (the default)
keeps the current SampleFDO behavior. When the fs-discriminator is
enabled, we insert a flag variable, namely, llvm_fs_discriminator, to
the object. This symbol will checked by create_llvm_prof tool, and used
to generate a profile with FS-AFDO discriminators enabled. If this
happens, for an extbinary format profile, create_llvm_prof tool
will add a flag to profile summary section.
